2018 Edge Sport $34,233

Recommended Posts

I had a 2013 CPO Porsche Panamera S which was about to go out of CPO warranty coverage, wanted a sporty SUV so looked around here in Ocala Florida for a good deal.  Found my preferred color in white at a local dealer priced at $34k and change and went in to make a deal.  They offered me $40k for the Porsche, which wasn't a bad deal considering retail price is around $45k and it is not an easy car to sell in this neck of the woods.  I saved almost $3k in sales taxes by doing the trade in, plus the hassle of selling the Porsche by myself.  My edge sport has the navigation package and the safe and smart package, plus I got them to throw in the cargo package worth about $300.  

Impressions so far:

Engine:  Great performance, eco boost has lots of power at all rpms, surprised how fast this truck is.

Suspension:  Best ride I have seen in an SUV, stays flat in the corners, only thing comparable I have driven is Porsche Macan which is smaller and more expensive.

Comfort:  Love the seats, way more comfortable than my Panamera.  Air conditioning blows colder than my Panamera, which had a V8. Cabin has lots of space, room for golf clubs etc

Tech:  Navigation works fine,  Sony stereo more than adequate.  Standard headlights were weak so I replaced highs and lows with some Phillips Crystalvison Ultra halogen bulbs which are whiter and brighter than standard ones for $40,

Looks:  I love the stance and look of this truck, actually prefer it to the 19 Edge ST

Mileage:  Not that great, about the same as my Panamera, but I don't do that many miles.  I feed it Shell Premium.

Complaints:  I like the no fuel cap design, but unless I am doing something wrong, the fuel door does not lock.

Conclusion:  Love this truck, glad I bought it, learned a lot from reading many threads here before purchase.

Congratulations on the new ride. Hope you enjoy. Good review.

For the fuel door, it does not lock. Most (all?) Ford vehicles are like this. You can get a locking cap if your worried & need to. 

For the headlights, you can also go for factory HID by replacing the complete headlights & making a few edits in ForScan.

Beautiful ride! I would love to try those seats as the Titanium I have has seats made by the devil. I THINK the gas cap locks when you lock the car. I love that feature!

The seats in my 2018 are fine. Not the best I have ever ever sat on, but certainly not as bad as others claiming earlier versions.

Congrats on your new ride!! I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.
